linux-2.6 2.6.12 (source) and linux-image-2.6.12 is in unstable. Watch
out, package names have changed.

This is because it slipped into testing. If we had noticed, we would
have prevented this with a dummy RC bug, but it's late now.

glibc should enter testing, hopefully, in a week or so. We can only wait
for that at this point.

Maybe the easiest is to rebuild current udev in a testing box, and
install the new kernel from unstable (that won't have any dependency

That, or wait. We're really focused on ALSA 1.0.10, so we'd like to keep
going. When new versions of glibc get stuck, testing suffers in many
ways. This is one of them. :(
